Tasting Notes

Pretty pale salmon dress, with a light mousse and very fine bubbles. The nose evokes acidulous red fruits (currant, raspberry, blackcurrant), as well as the crust of fresh bread. The palate is fresh, lively and well balanced, with a pleasant fruity length.

Food pairing

Desserts, fresh fruit salad, pear tart and almond cream
